Founded in 2008, Ultimate Safaris specializes in well-orchestrated privately guided naturalist safaris for individuals as well as for small and intimate groups and we boast one of the most experienced, creative and respected ‘tribes’ in the Namibian safari industry. We are considered to be amongst the leading authorities on travel to Namibia, often pioneering new ways in which to experience the country, and we ensure exceptional leadership and a real connection to the people and places we take guests to visit. Our driving force is a carefully selected tribe of experts who are passionate about all aspects of Namibia and who understand the importance of seamless guest services. It is this that allows us to ensure that our trade partners are best placed to offer truly memorable safaris to their guests in one of the most awe-inspiring countries on earth.

We employ the best naturalist guides and Journeysmiths, all of whom live and work in Namibia; we offer the finest portfolio of lodges, hotels and camps (including our own); and we run a state-of-the-art fleet of specialized safari vehicles. This means we can guarantee an unequalled level of personal attention and we can maintain the highest standards when planning and organizing Namibian safaris. From initial enquiries to the final touches, our tribe is committed to bringing together all the elements that create the life enriching journeys we offer.

We consider ourselves to be at the cutting edge, and often well ahead of the game, when it comes to specialized safaris. We invest heavily in continuous exploration of new safari possibilities, and this makes us one of the most progressive and forward looking safari companies in the country.

Ultimate Safaris has also been involved in the development of responsible and sustainable tourism in a wider forum, and our principals have held a variety of executive decision-making positions concerning tourism on a National level.

Conservation Travel Foundation

Website http://conservationtravelfoundation.org/

The Conservation Travel Foundation was founded in 2006 by Tristan Cowley, later also a co-founder of Ultimate Safaris. From the onset, the objective of the Foundation was to partner with Conservation Travel to bring about tangible, positive impacts on ecosystem conservation and on the socio-economic development of rural communities in Namibia.

Ultimate Safaris is a significant contributor to the Foundation in both finance and administration services. All safari guests, friends and partners of the company are invited to make contributions to the Foundation and its projects. Safari participants receive a Conservation Travel Foundation information booklet and a donation form in the travel documentation they receive on arrival for their safari. Foundation projects range from support for desert-adapted rhino and predator conservation projects to improved school infrastructure in rural areas.

The early efforts of the Foundation raised a mere few hundred dollars a year. It now raises, and deploys, in excess of US$ 250,000 a year for conservation and rural development projects in Namibia.
